Removed toilet for composting.. HELP

First I own a 2016 Shasta Oasis 18fq..

I took out the toilet that came with it to make room for the composting toilet that we are gonna be using. After doing this the wife said.."if we have water in this and turn on the pump won't it come out that hose?", referring to the hose that connects to the stock toilet... which i thought... oh crap....

So the question is.. is there any type of valve to stop the flow to that hose, or just anyways to cap the end of the hose??

Thanks in advance

Find a dowel rod the correct size and clamp it in the hose . Keep it simple .

Maybe you can report back on your experience. Lots of discussion about composting toilets in this current thread.

I keep one of those plugs in my camper at all times. It's saved me when we have had a couple of leaks.
